On Friday last the Liberal Association held a Dance at Rock Creek. If
we say it was 'a successful affair we
would be putting it in the mildest form.
Never before was such a crowd seen at
a dance in'Rock Creek. Cars from the
four points of the compass started to
arrive about 8 o'clock and by the time
the affair was in full swing over eighty
cars were counted.   ���
The music was provided by Bush's
famous orchestra and they were never
in better form. From start to finish
enthusiasm was at a high pitch.
The Elimination Dance caused' a
great deal of merriment but when the
Balloon Dance came along the crowd
went wild with excitement. Miss
Heather Harris won the prize for the
former and Miss May Sharp carrier off
the honpr. for the latter.
At midnight supper-was served and
tho able manner in which the Rock
Creek Ladies handled the refreshments
deserves special comment. They had
allowed a good margin for what might
be termed an excess crowd but these
estimates were over-run to such ah extent that special arrangements had to
be made at the last minute.
D. McPherson M. L. A. made a short
but decidedly humorous speech, in
which he expressed his appreciation of
the interest the public had taken in
this gathering. .
In the wee small hours the dance
was concluded and as the ��� merrima-,
makers were homeward bound they
were unanimous in stating thaMt was
one of the best dances ever held in the
The Rock Creek baseball team playr
ed their opening game on June 3rd.
Chesaw was the opposing team, coming
over with a good sporting line-up. ���
The game was a close one as at the
end of the ninth innnings both teams
were even. A tenth inning, was decided on and Fry disposed of the 3
Chesaw men up for no score. Rock
Creek was up, Walker-making a drive
to make 2nd base, Walsh followed with
a long drive which brought in Walker
making the game safe for Rock Creek
by one run.
Referee Sweezy handled the game to
the satisfaction' of both players and
spectators alike.    .
It. is hoped to have Beaverdell"at
Rock Creek'diamond on Sunday next.
Following was the Rock Creek lineup: Fry,' Bing, A. DeLisle, Walsh,
DeLisle.   -
The Kettle River is receding rapidly
'and the water on the .golf course is
disappearing. The grass will be cut on
the'links during the week, obviating
the continual loss of balls. The Building Bee on Monday, consisting of
F. Bubar, E." Richter, F. Richter, J.
Richter, Beckett; Gane,"Weed, Lander,
Gray, Brew, and J. Bruce, made considerable headway with-the "new club
Rev. A. J. Doull, Bishop of Kootenay,
Vernon,, B.C., was the guest of Major
and Mrs. R.- Gray at Kettle Valley,
during the first-of-the-week. Bishop
Doull enjoyed a game of golf on the
Kettle Valley links on Monday.
Is Set fof
The sixteenth Parliament of British Columbia was dissolved in Victoria today and electors of this province will
go to the polls in general election on Wednesday, July 18th.
On Sunday, Jewel Lake again made
itself famous. Local anglers succeeded
in landing ten "beautiful Kamloops
Trout with a total weight of seventy
The number ten does not sound very
large but the sight of them is surpri-.
sing indeed.- To catch one of these
beauties is an event to be remembered
for life. 0
At Campbell River there is the Tyee
Club. Each person catching a Tyee
Salmon over a-certain "weight is presented with a medal and admitted
to the Tyee Club. The setting is now
perfect for the Jewel Club.
Sport in* the , Boundary is developing
in a most interesting manner In a
previous issue mention was made about
the deer becoming so plentiful. A
good story is opened up by this fact,
it would take pages to tell all about it,
but here the writer might mention the
cougar hunters. The way they follow
the big cats day after day in the deep
snow, with almost no protection against the cold at night and with the
smallest amount of food upon which a
man can exist. About the faithful dogs
that follow the track through the
swamps and over the mountains until
the animal is finally treed,- Then in a
more or less exhausted condition ~ and
with the additional weight of a cougar
skin the hunter has to retrace his steps.
These men seem to "possess an extra
sense. That of Location. Without it
how would they find their way back.
.This is a mere outline. If someone
possessing a versatile pen would care
tq investigate he would find material
for a most interesting story.

The Hon. Charles Stewart, minister
of the interior has just circulated a
series of blotters'depicting Canada at
the time of Confederation and today.
The series is entitled Canadian capitals. The capital cities of'the Dominion, pictured today in contrast with
their appearance in 1867, carry a graphic reflection of Canadian progress
in the last sixty years, the minister
says: Less than half a century ago
Canada, west of 'the 'Great: Lakes,
���boasted little more than the outposts
of settlement ancl trade. Today Canadian development spans the continent. Added to the older eastern capitals, a series of new western cities
typify the transformation of the
prairies and the Pacific coast. Frontier posts have become not merely
seats of. government for great provinces, but capitals of industry and
commerce known literally throughout
the business world. For business or
for pleasure' the Dominion is ��� a
country well worth seeing. A; rare
versatility greets the' eye of the business visitor. Canada's commercial
advance during, the last quarter century ranks as one" of the notable
features of world progress! In manufacturing and agriculture, mining and
power development, forest and fisheries, industries, finance and transportation���in all of the major fields of business enterprise Canada holds.exceptional interest and attraction fox the
forehanded man of 'affairs. To the
vacationist, travelling by rail, water or
motor, the Dominion is a land, of
change and charm. Above all there is
the quality of scenic contrast���lake
region, mountains or rolling prairies.
And from Halifax to Vancouver a score
.of busy modern cities compete in appeal with the quieter recreation of
countless wayside holiday retreats.
East and West, clear across! the continent, Canada presents; endless variety of interest for the visitor.'from
abroad. It is a land of beauty and
hospitality, a land of great progress

. The bill to amend the Immigration
The expansion in Canadian business
since the beginning of the year has
been quite general throughout the five
economic areas of the country, according to a new index prepared by Sydney
B. Smith for the Financial Post, says
the Western Tribune. The average index for Canada during the first quarter
was 119.3, says Mr. Smith, compared
with 105.0 in the corresponding period
of 1927. Marked increase were shown
in each of the live economic areas, the
greatest relative expansion being
chalked up in Quebec and British Columbia. The gain in Ontario, was
scarcely less striking, while moderate
gains were shown in the Maritimes
and  in the three prairie provinces.
The index was prepared with the
object of measuring the. trend, of general business in each of the Ave economic areas, a composite for the Do-'
minidn as a whole being computed for
purposes.of comparison. The index is
a weighted average of seven factors,
indicating the trend of business. Each
factor was adjusted for seasonal tendencies, and expressed as a percentage
of the monthly average in 1926.
The province of British Columbia
appears to be subject to short periods
of sharp expansion followed by a considerable period in which the business
level is approximately maintained. At
least a marked gain was shown in the
early months of 1926, and this gain
was shown in the early months of 1926,
and this gain was consolidated and
held until the^ end of 4927. Business
received a great' impetus during the
first two months of 1928 and in March,
the latest month, for which complete
records are available, was practically
maintained at that high level.
Act passed-the-Senate~~ih~~OttawaTon
May 31st without division.
The bill, when it reached the Senate,
proposed to eliminate section 41 of the
Immigration Act. Under this section a
British subject born without Canada
but who;had become a resident of this
country, could be deported for seditious
practices without trial.    :
The Senate eliminated this section,
but substituted in its place the section
on the same subject which .was in the
act 'of 1910, which removes the discrimination against British subjects in
Canada, and as the new act now stands
no British subject born outside Canada
and a resident in Canada for five years,
can be deported for sedition or like
Ottawa.���-Premier Mackenzie King
has sent a rush reply to the plea of a
Saskatchewan farmer for rain. The
rain came on Tuesday night and Wednesday of last week.
The letter to the Premier was read
in the Senate and after asking that
the Premier appoint himself rainmaker
extraordinary to Saskatchewan, it said:
"We have had a wonderful seeding
time and everything is now in good
shape. I wish you would draw, attention of the Prime Minister to the desirability of arranging for a copious
supply of rain each week for the next
three weeks, and we will guarantee to
deliver the greatest crop Western Canada has ever produced."
Tuesday night and Wednesday the
southwest section of the province was
soaked. It was the first rain of the
month, and enough moisture fell to
guarantee safety and good growing
conditions for at least two weeks.

Of the millions of horsepower available in our
province, but half a million are now harnessed to turn
the wheels of industry. The great hydro-electric development at Bridge River will ultimately generate more than
600,000 horsepower, while the output at Bonnington.
- Falls and other points is being steadily increased. The
Campbell and Chilko Rivers, on the mainland, and
the Nimpkish on Vancouver Island, are capable of

Two of British Columbia's Electric Power'systems
are'among the greatest in Canada, each generating
more than 400,000,000 kilowatt hours in 1927. This
represents an increase in the last ten years of 98%..,
truly a remarkable achievement!!'
Foreign authorities speak of this record as a measure
of the great vitality of British Columbia..'....
Today we rank third in po^ver and industrial development among Canadian provinces. We have made greater
progress per capita than any!
It is the policy of British Columbia to foster the
development of the hydroelectric powers for, the benefit
of the public. They are allotted to private enterprises
on condition that they will be developed within a certain
time, so that no exploitation of public assets may take
Millions of dollars are now earmarked for Power
development in our. province. Dams are being built,
turbines installed . . . transmission lines erected to care
for the imminent industrial development.
Thousands of dollars are being expended weekly on
materials.and wages; thousands are feeling the immediate benefits'of this enterprise.
Side'by side with our power development, Industrial
Expansion has kept pace. Today 17% of Canada's external
. trade is handled by British Columbia. During the past
decade, bur basica.industries have increased 101.3%.
Our total payroll, including all classes, js_estimajted_at_
^lO^million^dollarsl^Todayrom^ Lumbering, Mining and
Fishing industries employ 72,517 people, paying them
175 million dollars in wages . . . distributing an average
wage ranking among the highest in Canada.
These 175 millions in wages are a great contribution
to our annual internal trade in the province. They
have given our industrial workers a buying power ranking
second in the Dominion and have largely been responsible
for our ever increasing prosperity, as evidenced by the
fact that the number of automobiles registered in the
province last year was 76,187 as compared with 8,596
in 1916. y
British Columbia's steady and varied industrial
development has changed the conception in Eastern
Canada and the United States of our province.' No longer
are we entirely dependent on the East for pur manufactured products. British Columbia is increasingly -
furnishing her own needs. She now ranks third in the
whole Dominion as a manufacturing-province.
Our phenomenal Power and Industrial growth'has
focused the attention of the great industrialists and
investors on our province. Today, British Columbia in
the eyes of the world, stands for Power, Progress and
Plenty. May our efforts of the next ten years stabilize
and increase our Prosperity!

Ifc is not the chief purpose" of the
Department of Agriculture to encourage growers to plant certified seed with
a view to having their crops inspected
for certification purposes, because
every potato-grower has not the necessary patience and the.time, or suitable
location vand equipment for growing
certified seed. The object rather is to
have growers plant the best seed obtainable for their commercial crop, and
to help to keep down to a minimum
destructive plant diseases with their
resultant serious effect on yields. It
is desirable to obtain greater acre-
yields and so to reduce the cost of production. The use of certified seed on
many farms would double the yields
now being obtained.
